Advice on simple sequencer/sampler for live use?

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

The Emu E4XT I picked up about 6 months ago is no end of frustration for me for live use.

The reason I picked it up was to have a unit that could load up SMF's for use with the sequencer, and also to have the ability to sample sounds from cover tunes that our band does live. For the samplling side of things, the unit has worked well, but the sequencer is a major pain in the ass. I just don't find it intuitive at all (maybe I'm just to used to the wide open space of a DAW sequencer).

Anyway, I'm looking around for something small (Emu is 3U's high), has a simple sequencer, bit of synth sounds, and can sample short sections of material, etc, above all "easy to use"

Is there anything besides Roland's SP-XXX boxes I should be looking at?

 

Thanks.

Dan,

 

I've been trying to get a hold of the new Korg Kaoss KP3. It may not be for you but you should know what it is. It has a limited phrase sampler and it certainly doesn't have a sequencer. But it does have some nifty controller capabilities and nice effects. I have put a deposit on one and am waiting for it to arrive. I figure it may provide some of the backing tracks I am looking for and also provide some resampling.
